New York plane crash and RIBs

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7832191.stm

Talk about lucky!!!

Nobody seriously hurt by the look of it - definitely a miracle and some cool flying as well.............

Noticed quite a few RIBs around!!!

From the footage I saw, the boats with orange sponsons that look like RIBS are actually SAFE Boats. They are aluminum hull with hard foam flotation. SAFE Boats is what the U.S. Coast Guard has standardized their small boat fleet with, at least the 25' and 33' models.
